Franklin's Flying Bookshop - Jen Campbell

This wonderfully illustrated, magical tale is about Franklin the book-loving dragon who would love to read stories to people, but they're far too scared of him! Until one day he makes friends with a girl named Luna – she's not scared because she's read all about dragons herself – and they talk non-stop about what they've read: books about roller skating, King Arthur, spiders and how to do kung fu. They decide to open a flying bookshop on Franklin's back, so they can share their love of books with everyone else.

This is an utterly charming picture book with two excellent, well-read role models, all about the love of reading.
